I did it. I read the 50 Shades of Gray books. I feel the need to scrub my brain out. Honestly it was neither as bad nor as good as I expected. Is it an unhealthy relationship? Yes. Are the main characters annoying? Yes. Is it as abusive as I expected? No. (Is it abusive? Yes.) Is it a mindless rehash of stereotypes? Yes. Is it a thin plot? Yes. Are the characters at least 3 dimensional? Usually.
There was, however, a certain entropy that made me keep reading and finish the series. At heart I think I was hoping for that redeeming factor that never materialized...
